    Tips

    • Place the sound effects at moments when you make a spectacular movement.

    Warnings

    • Always make a copy of your mixes. You may be able to reuse parts of a mix later on.
    • Watch out for free music downloads. It is illegal and may contain viruses.
    • Practice well before revealing your dance to the public!
